F800GS Rear Brake

Ordering a new 2014 800GS (non-ADV) and was hoping to upgrade the stock rear brake pedal which seems buried to my size 14 foot. I saw Touratech makes an adjustable (2 position for height, 2 position for length). Was wondering if anyone had any experience lengthening and increasing the size of the pedal with an aftermarket piece? If so, what have you have and from whom?

Many thx in advance!

I have this, and couldn't be happier. I've heard someone here say that they had retrofitted the adventure's brake pedal onto the standard trim, but that looks very expensive.

The biggest improvement for individuals of larger stature seems to be large/lowered pegs.

Once I did that, the brake pedal was a non issue, and I could ride all day on the pegs.

I have you beat with size 15 stompers. The TT adjustable pegs are very wide, and bring them down and forward, too. Then just carefully bend the brake pedal out a cm or two and you're good to go.

Any suggestions on specific peg lowering kits or adjustable pegs?

I have a pair of SW motech, cheaper than most of the options out there and can be lowered up to 2cm. love them both on and offroad. so thrilled with them that I bought another pair for my 1150

I'm using the Fastway Adventure Pegs. The only other option for me was the BlackDog Pegs.

I had it and the adjustment was minimal at best, I ended up buying the fitting the pedal from an f800GS Adv and it has been much better but I'm a size 10 shoe not a 14, Touratech makes pegs that sit rearward and will give you more space so I would try that first

I have the Wunderlich enlarger, but if I had it to do over again I'd get the touratech as it wouldn't get slippery in the mud........... as it is an open design......

I can't find it on the website right now ...
It looked almost like this one:

http://www.touratech-usa.com/Store/P...models-R1150GS

and was $35 or so bucks...

There's a thread here somewhere on changing the bump-stop for the rear pedal so the resting position is a bit lower...
it's on my list.............
